Shooting Hoops with @Doncharleone

This past Sunday we had the honour of having my good friend Charlie Lindsday aka @Doncharleone come teach us how to shoot sports photography. Charlie has had the opportunity to work with companies such as Nike, Adidas, Underarmour and many different sporting brands. He specializes in Basketball Photography and has started his second season shooting with NBA Canada this year. The kids were already familiar with who he was when i said he would be visiting us. His photos of Lebron James and Stephen Curry were a huge favourite amongst them. Upon his arrival they were chanting his name and you could see that Charlie was super happy to join us. Charlie started by telling us a bit about himself and how he got into photography. He broke the kids into two groups. The first group would be taking the photos and the second would have their photo taken. We also had Houssein an older brother of one of the kids and photographer from the communnity join us. All in all it was a great success and the kids said they couldn't wait to see Charlie again.
